Oh, no, she didn’t! While talking about her costume designs for The Devil Wears Prada this past weekend at the New Yorker Festival, Patricia Field committed the ultimate woman-on-woman crime: “No way I was going to apply Anna Wintour’s look to Meryl Streep; it would have been a mess,” she told the audience, then explained why: “Meryl Streep is a German, big-boned, different woman.” Oh, dear. In lady-speak, calling someone big-boned is like calling someone Rubenesque, or curvy, or basically, an outright lardass. Patricia better send Meryl some chocolates — no, flowers! — right away.
